You have to mount the drive or partition.

Depends also on a few other things. The user has to have the rights to mount filesystems if they are not in fstab.

Use the command mount to see what is mounted just in case it is already mounted.

Also not all versions of rh supported ntfs and almost no versions support exfat yet.You may have to install ntfs or ntfs3g to read and write to a drive.


See man mount.

Why did it take me over a year to phone in a problem to ATT?

Use a more friendly version of Linux, like Ubuntu. I have it with both XP and 7 and all drives are auto mounted including usb flash.
